North Korea's "dictatorial paranoia" kept it at the head of the 50 countries on its annual list. But-the gap between North Korea and the rest of the world is narrowing, Open Doors said. Throughout the 49 other countries o,, the list, the dominant and growing source of pressure on Christians is "Islamic extremism." Source: World Watch Monitor. summarized by Pastor Rick Ask Pastor Rick Doesn't John 3:5 teach we are born again by water baptism? First, I'll post the passage, and then do my best to explain it. John 3:5 - [Jesus speaking] Truly, truly I say to you, except a man is born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Some Christ followers take the words "of water" to mean "the waters of baptism," but it doesn't have to mean that. Water is used in a variety of ways in Scripture. Jesus spoke to the woman at the well and said, "Whosoever drinks of the WATER that I shall give him shall never thiFst" (John 4:14- emphasis mine). He was speaking about the spiritual refreshment that eternal life brings. John 3 is a conversation between Jesus and a Jewish religious Jeader about how to be born again. Water and spirit are necessary for that new birth. And in this case, water is a symbol of something, but what? I think it is the Word of God. Here's how the apostle Paul described the new birth: He saved us -- not by works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His! : mercy, through the WASHING OF REGENERATION and renewal by the Holy Spirit [Titus 3:5 - emphasis mine]. Peter taught that we are born again "not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, BY THE WORD OF GOD, which lives and abides for ever" [1 Peter 1:23 - emphasis mine]. Using these two verses, submit to you that we ar , born again by the Word and by the Spirit, not by the waters of baptism and the Spirit.

Signing on together would give mom an opportunity to supervise, whereas an all out ban won't necessarily ke'ep a child away from a network. But it might teach the child to simply sign up without telling room. (According to Pew Internet, 39% of online teens lied about their age to get an account.) So if the request didn't go away when my daughter was young, I sat down with he('to"look at the site and hopefully dispel the excitement with hard facts. If that didn't work, we set a date when she would be allowed to join. Or, if I decided it was. the prudent course,we joined together. Destination: Danish When it comes to teaching kids tech smarts, location- aware social networks -- the "Check in" feature on Facebook, location tagging in Twitter, and Foursquare -- merit instruction. Using a smart phone's GPS, the site allows you to broadcast your location with a couple of taps to "Check In" and share it with whatever part of your social network you choose. These tools scare the bejesus out of some parents, while others are completely unaware they exist. And they are a good example of why kids need to be taught to use social media safely. It is without doubt dangerous for anyone especially a young teen girl to broadcast her precise location to a large and faceless crowd. But consciously broadcasting her location to a carefully curated group can be an easy way to find her friends at the mall or share her whereabouts with mom and dad. Good or bad, these tools exist, and would be easy for any smart-phone wielding kids to use without their parents' knowledge. For me, the smart play is to get there first and teach my kids how to use the tools well. So on a recent vacation, I asked my kids to download Foursquare to their smart phones. I showed them that the app could post their location to Facebook and Twitter and how to shut that feature off, and we created a small group that they could share with -- a group that included me. Then one morning, while the kids were sleeping late, my husband and I went out for coffee. Using Foursquare, I shared our location and a tempting menu of pastries with them. They got up, used the navigation to locate us, and showed up at our table. Since they had found us just by using my check in, they could see how a stalker could do the same thing. Then we all ate pastries. Cat-and-mouse game Granted, my success in teaching my children about socia networks has created its own problems. My son has become good at false identities, locking down privacy settings to keeprne out. A few years ago he created a completely separate Facebook account and migrated his friends over to the new one. He left the old one alive and wel, even posted witty announcements to it, just for his dad and me. And we fell for it until, one day he accidently chastised a friend on the old account: "This account is just for my parents, dummy. Post this kind of stuff to my real page." We had been completely played. I considered getting back at him by posing as an adorable high-school freshman girl and friending him on the new page. But I took the high road and insisted that, at his age (14 at the time), I had to be on his friends list or he would lose Internet access..I got refriended and this decision alone told me he wasn't hiding from me for dark reasons. Teens just want privacy (and they need to be repeatedly reminded that social media sites are the last place you should go to seek it). Building an online brand My conversations with my son about social media now focus on how to create a public self that reflects his accomplishments, rather than the silly jokes he shares with his peeps. A positive social media presence is a valuable asset. So find myself telling him about networks like Zinch.com and Cappex.com, designed to help kids connect with colleges and to seek out college admissions officers and adult mentors to friend on his networks. Social media can be deadly when it comes to college and job opportunities. A 2012" report by Kaplan Test Prep found that 35 percent of college admission officers surveyed said they'd "discovejred something online about an applicant that negatively impacted their application" -- up from 12 percent in 2011. In another study, hiring managers and human resource officers at two.-out of five companies surveyed said they use social networking sites to screen job candidates. But parents should also talk to kids about how their social networking in essence creates a personal brand whether they like it or not. If your brand screams, "Beer pong champion!" it won't get you far outside of the party. But if you convey that you're a deep thinker who reads Crime and Punishment, spends Sunday afternoons at a soup kitchen, wrote the song you just played and posted it will be always out there advancing your goals. Getting my son to think of the world as bigger than his immediate social network is a big conversation and we're only just beginning. But it's one that will allow him to turn his social media skills into a powerful and positive tool. The Age of Unfriending My daughter is just at the dawn of the Age of Unfriending (when kids try to rid their social networks of pesky parents and anyone who would rat them out to same). It doesn't necessarily mean kids are up to anything nefarious. Right now, my daughter alternates between welcoming me into her social networks and ordering me to leave. I might be able to stop her from unfriending me with the reliable, "1 don't buy computers for people who aren't friends!" line. But I can't stop her from creating an isolation list for me. So, in addition to never commenting on her posts or reacting with punishments, I do a lot of strategic online gifting. Would you unfriend someone who just posted an H&M shopping spree on your wall? Of course, I find a way to talk to her about anything risky I see her doing online. That's the point of all of this surveillance in the first place. I initiate these discussions in her room with the door closed, not online or in front of her friends. At 14, she no longer wants her friends to know she learns anything from me. She might even ignore or yell at me while 'm talking to her to convince herself of this. But my message usually gets through. In fact, I've seen her use information from our chats to inform her friends. Would taking a hard line with my kids be easier, or better for them in the long run? I doubt it. They would find a way, with or without me, to use social media. And that would mean they would have to learn a lot the hard way... in front of hundreds of friends and countless strangers. And besides, they are my favorite people in every social network I frequent, even if they are sometimes -- a bit juvenile
